Calling all trivia champs… the City of West Palm Beach is inviting the public to test their knowledge and enjoy a fun-filled evening of trivia at Aesop’s Tables. Every Wednesday evening during Summer in Paradise, beginning July 12 through August 30, 2017, from 8:00 to 10:00 p.m., the City will reward those who know the most about random facts related to history, pop culture, science and more. In addition to trivia host Duane Hamilton, table hosts will also be on hand to help facilitate lively discussions, encourage participation and unite the community.

Aesop’s Tables is a whimsical art installation of 25 painted picnic tables, with each one depicting one of Aesop’s fables. A direct tie to Mayor Jeri Muoio’s pledge declaring West Palm Beach as a City of Kindness, the storybook setting provides an opportunity for all to connect, explore local art, share their own stories and enjoy family-friendly activities on the West Palm Beach waterfront. Aesop’s Tables is presented by the City of West Palm Beach Art in Public Places and celebrates the talents of local artists. The tables feature depictions of “The Jay and the Peacock,” “Tortoise and the Hare,” “The Lion and the Mouse,” and more.
